Khosro Abad Mansion

Related to Sanandaj city (located in Kurdistan province)
Khosro Abad Mansion which is located near Shebli Blvd. in Sanandaj, is a memorial of the reputed Amanollah Khan. Its construction is related to the beginning of the Qajar period and it was a seat of government.

Amanullah Khan Ardalan, the ruler of Kurdistan was the son of a great Khosro Khan. He ordered to build Khosro Abad mansion in 1808. Of course, some believe that the eastern part of the building is related to the Zandieh era. They also attribute its development to Amanullah Khan. Although this mansion was the seat of political and military rule, it was used more as a place for ritual ceremonies and celebrations. Also, the wedding ceremony of “Hosn-e Jahan Khanom”, the daughter of Fath Ali Shah, with Amanullah Khan’s son, was taken in this place.
